This is the versioning of metafont, so it doesn't seem appropriate.

I like the patch number best, since it is then a trivial matter to generate the
appropriate source. Also, returning to my wish of letting the user specify an
axiom version, (in fact, needed only in IssueTracker): I guess it would make
this easier, too. Bill: It's needed only per page, at least for a start. You 
you ran together the axiom environments to a pile. So, maybe it is possible to
store the optional argument of the first axiom environment into a variable and
then start the Axiom-executable indicated by this optional argument?
